Kit is proud to be a Blackhart, now she’s living with her unorthodox cousins and sharing their strange lives. Especially since their home-schooling includes spells, fighting enemy fae and using ancient weapons.
But it’s not until she rescues a rather handsome fae prince, fighting for his life on the edge of Blackhart Manor, that her training really kicks in. With her family away on various missions, Kit must protect Prince Thorn, rely on new friends and use her own unfamiliar magic to stay ahead of Thorn’s enemies.
As things go from bad to apocalyptic, fae battle fae in a war that threatens to spill into the human world. Then Kit pits herself against the Elder Gods themselves – it’s that or lose everyone she’s learnt to love.
A little bit about the author- Liz is far too fond of coffee shops and beautiful stationery but she uses both as incentive to keep on writing. Having been born and raised in South Africa, Liz now lives in the UK with her husband and their unruly Jack Russell. Liz has always loved reading and writing, much to the annoyance of her family who could never leave pens lying about without finding her scribbling on walls or bits of paper.
It was when she moved to the UK that Liz decided to not give up on her dream to become a published writer. She set to work to read as many books as she could and this led to her setting up My Favourite Books book blog which she ran for around eight years. Through blogging she met a great many authors whose own stories fed her fuel and enthusiasm for the written word.
She continued writing and landed an agent – Juliet Mushens – during the Olympics of 2012 and signed her bookdeal in March 2013.
The Blackhart Legacy is her first series and three books are planned. The books are contemporary urban fantasies heaped with action, romance, fairy tale creatures, folklore and lashings of mythology.
Liz sincerely hopes that the events she writes about in the series do not come true.
